The use of the blockchain against spam
The head of TRAI Rum Balls Sharma said that the regulator is the first Indian organization, which will officially use blockchain technology for the purpose of controlling at a high level. According to Sharma, one month, residents receive about 30 billion ads. Most advertising is spam or a Scam.
The blockchain will provide two things — privacy for clients, and transparency for advertisers. Once the user finds a spam, it will immediately be able to complain to the advertiser and to block the delivery of messages through our official app.
The block chain will be a great means for the orderly preservation of all actions between users of telecommunications. Even if a spammer uses a 10-digit phone number, it will be easy to calculate using the blockchain.
The draft telecommunications regulation with the help of technology will be open for public comment until June 11. The regulator also plans to establish a program for the periodic review of requirements to advertisers that their rights were taken into account.
